No. 1: Florida QB Tim Tebow


No. 1: Florida QB Tim Tebow
This is part of our countdown of the top 100 players in college football. “Top” doesn’t necessarily mean the most pro potential, or even the most talent. It’s what the player has accomplished and how we think the player will do this season. But production does trump potential.
No. 1: Florida QB Tim Tebow
THE PARTICULARS: 6-3/245, Sr.; Ponte Vedra (Fla.) Nease
THE BUZZ: He’s college football’s brightest star and one of the nation’s biggest sports personalities. Enjoy Tebow while you can. He already has won a Heisman and two national championships in an already-iconic career. Tebow’s Brahma-bull running style and improving passing game make him the ultimate dual threat. Couple that with an ability to inspire and impeccable off-field character, and it’s easy to see why Tebow could become the top college football player of all time.
Rankings determined by writers Olin Buchanan, Tom Dienhart, David Fox, Mike Huguenin and Steve Megargee.
